I could trace that to: <>

Is being based on poppler bad? Is this software bad in its design?

Nothing bad being based on poppler.. I don't know the design of that program so I can't tell. Poppler or xpdf can give at least some PDF functionality, while for ghostscript, like used in GSPdf, each page is just an image, there won't be stuff like search and I guess it will be always slower, but the rendering quality is quite high.
Different approaches.

The discussion of xpdf vs poppler then goes beyond this thread I guess.

I tried to compile PoppletKit for Vindaloo, and it gives me this error
even though I already installed libpoppler-dev and libpopplerkit0:

Making all for subproject bindings...

Sorry I don't know, never built that software myself.

Is it useful for me to try GSPdf and edit it to add continuous scrolling

What is a good starting point for getting continuous scrolling somehow

I can't think of an easy way of adding it in GSPdf. THink of GSPdf like an image viewer... one image after teh other, just that the images are your pages rendered to a /tmp
